In this program, a comprehensive approach will be taken to explore these exciting advancements including high-resolution manometry and impedance monitoring, new techniques in endoscopic detection and treatment of Barrett’s esophagus, and insights into new diseases such as eosinophilic esophagitis. A special feature of this program is a hands-on workshop for interpretation and performance of motility studies, new endoscopic imaging techniques, and endoscopic mucosal resection and ablation.

Join guest faculty Michael F. Vaezi, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Medicine, Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, Vanderbilt University, and Mayo Clinic experts in Phoenix, Arizona, December 1-2, 2017.
